Local Opportunities for Volunteering & Interning
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook for historians, internships and other field experiences "offer an opportunity to learn practical skills, such as handling and preserving artifacts and creating exhibits. They also give students an opportunity to apply their academic knowledge in a hands-on setting." Taking advantage of these opportunities while completing your studies can provide you with additional analytical and technical skills that make you a more versatile and experienced job candidate. As "America's First Settlement," Pensacola offers history students several opportunities to intern and/or volunteer locally! See the links below for specific position descriptions and links to applications.
The UWF Historic Trust offers four different volunteer opportunities with flexible hours at Historic Pensacola Village.
